[Saturday 7th May]
Today we had a ceremony to mark one year since Kana, Chie's sister, passed away. Obviously it was quite an emotional day, but the whole family came together and pulled through. After the ceremony, at which a Buddhist monk attended, held at Chie's grandparents' house, we went to some formal Japanese gardens for a meal. The gardens were really beautiful, particularly as the flowers were in full bloom. They must have a lot of foreign visitors (perhaps as it is near Mazda HQ) as they were able to provide me with a vegetarian menu. We left there around 4 or 5, and after that headed back to the family home for a quiet night in.
